Living your best life is, has, and always will be described differently depending on the person who you are talking to. Some may describe life as a day to day experience, one that you need to work a 9-5 job to pay the bills and have an occasional date night. Others, the ones who realize they’re alive, live life as it is their destiny to make a difference. But the only way to make a real difference is by them having the knowledge of being, feeling, and doing something spectacular. Something that ignites that spark within themselves. That spark that recognizes fear and changes it into ambition.
As humans, we never truly see how little we are. How little we matter to the huge picture and how well we fit into the universe’s plan. Don’t get me wrong because we are all here for a reason but we are small.
Large enough to matter to the world, and yet, still have little impact.
For a large impact to take place we all need to come together and equally act upon the issue to try and create a life-changing impact. We all need to have the same mindsets but in all reality, the chances of that happening are extremely low. So what do we do? How do we make a change? How do we create an impact on something that matters to us?
When we realize this tiny little thought and have it wrapped around our brains we become more personable, more alive, more real and most importantly, and more willing. Building your best self-allows for you to truly become who you were made to be. Whether you are made to sing and provide music for those having trouble finding their calling, or being a traveler to show that lonely girl that there’s so much more to what the eyes can see. You are making a difference by creating the best you.
Travelling does this wonderfully. It opens your eyes to life, to the world, to the large and small day-to-day issues, to diversity, to poverty, to change. You experience the unspeakable. You live your life learning and helping others create their own ambitions and sparks.
When we live our best lives and become the people we dream of being, doing the things we’ve dreamed of doing and having no fear, we unleash the power of positive impact. When you open your heart up to the world and to everyone around it, you are consciously making your impact.
As the simple and yet relevant song goes, “If everyone cared, and nobody cried If everyone loved and nobody lied, If everyone shared and swallowed their pride, then we’d see the day where nobody died.” This is a great quote as it shows the power of what we as a world can do but the reality behind how well it would go over. So instead, you as a pure human being have to do what is in your heart to become who you truly are. Once you’ve mastered that mindset, then you are open to helping and healing those who are a step or two behind you. If everyone lived their lives like this then we could make a large impact, but for now, we take it … one step at a time, because we’re alive.
It is time to be alive. It is time to start acting alive. It is time to follow your heart and do it. Be an example, follow your dreams and catch those stars. Become who you are supposed to be and take a chance at life, it will surprise you with many different people, obstacles, and adventures where you’ll have the opportunity to change those lives of whom you meet. What is more real than that?
